Howard University Divinity School has a hooded tuba that makes a fence behind the alter and it is preposterously loud. It was transplanted from an organ in a very large building.

It makes a magnificent sound and I know that the organist is allowed to use it and at least one = non organist (the rector) likes it. The Gress Miles organ in St. John = Lafayette Square has a 'Tronpette a Pavillion' that is mounted horizontally behind = the facade pipes. The choir sits right in front of the organ and members have tried to bribe me to sabotage it. It is enough to part your hair but when = you get back into the (very dry) sanctuary it mellows enough to make a nice = solo stop and adds brilliance to full organ without overpowering it. The Ocean Grove Auditorium has an unenclosed hooded tuba on high pressure that = produces what I can only describe as a pure tuba tone of intense volume. It is not oppressive and can be clearly heard over the full (155 rank) organ but = does not overwhelm it. This is what these things are supposed to do. I think = they are a waste in a small run of the mill church but in a big room or medium sized room with a very active music program they can be very useful. It = all depends on two people; the builder who must have the skill to make it = usable and the organist who must have the skill to use it properly.   Cheers:   Alan B

(back) Subject: Expressive Chamades and other things. From: "Antoni Scott" <ascott@epix.net> Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2001 18:56:31 -0500   To the List:   The whole idea of mentioning the Chamade thing was in response to my statement about pipes sounding better when they are not "boxed up" in a Swell box. Of course there is a loss of flexibility when they are unexpressive, but they sound better out in the open. I think I would prefer the lack of flexibility to the better sound than have a "muffled" sound come out of a box.   I always thought a Trompette en Chamade meant that it wasn't ( i.e. en Chamade) enclosed but exposed "gun barrel" fashion pointing horizontally to the ground. Enclosing it would affect the effect of a direct sound source. They are usually too loud anyway. Interestingly, the CC organ in Toulouse has a loud en Chamade that blends nicely with the full organ rather than overpowering it, and it is not enclosed, either.   The 140 rank Aeolian Skinner organ in St. Thomas, 5th Avenue,NYC has one expression pedal. How much of it is under expression ?     Antoni Scott

Karr" <karr_sf@acadmn.mercer.edu> Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2001 23:10:46 -0500   Hi, all-   This past weekend was the 29th annual undergraduate organ competition at the First Presbyterian Church of Ottumwa, IA. Five finalists were chosen from a field of thirteen submitted tapes. I was one of those, so this is an inside view.   We arrived in Ottumwa on Friday (I was the last to get there, arriving at 6:30, just in time for dinner). There was an opening recital by Karen Black of Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. I don't have the program now, but I can type and send it to whomever might want it. Saturday morning began the practicing. Each of us had three hours at the 1970 Tellers instrument, beginning with me (Contestant 1) at 7:00 AM. Other than being way too early, I enjoyed it. The instrument and room work very well together there.   Sunday, we all attended the morning worship service and then each had 25 minutes to warm up, then the competition began about 2:30. Here is what was played:   Contestant 1:   Stephen Karr, Mercer University -- student of Robert Parris Bach: Prelude and Fugue in D Major Mendelssohn: Sonata III in A Major Messiaen: Transports de Joie fr. L'Ascension   Daniel Bayless, University of Kansas -- student of Michael Bauer Bach/Ernst: Concerto in G Major, mvts. I and II Vierne: Symphonie II, mvt. I Locklair: Windows of Comfort, book I, mvt. III (Baptism dance)   Nadia Papayani, Manhattan School of Music -- student of McNeil Robinson Bach: Sonata I, mvts. II and III Franck: Prelude, Fugue and Variation Dupre: Final fr. Seven Pieces   Jason Roberts, Rice University -- student of Clyde Holloway Bach: Prelude and Fugue in D Major Widor: Symphonie V, mvt. II Howells: Paean   Kevin Walker, Brigham Young University -- student of Don Cook Bach: Fantasia and Fugue in G minor Buck: Concert Variations on the Star Spangled Banner Durufle: Prelude and Fugue on the name of ALAIN   Each of us also played the hymn tune Lasst uns Erfreuen, Psalm 117 in the Presbyterian Hymnal.   There were three honorable mention prizes of $100 each, a second place prize of $400, and the first place winner recieved an $800 check and will return in the fall to play a recital at the church.   Honorable mention: Daniel Bayless, Nadia Papayani, Jason Roberts Second Place: Kevin Walker First Place: me.   Thanks,   -Stephen Karr

(back) Subject: organ music and copyright From: "Joshua Haberman" <joshua@haberman.com> Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2001 22:46:25 -0800   Many if not most of you have probably heard of Project Gutenberg, the massive archive of classic books whose copyrights have expired. Since they are in the public domain, they can be freely downloaded, copied and printed.   The Mutopia Project is a similar effort for music -- it lives at http://www.mutopiaproject.org. The music is typeset using a free program called LilyPond and available for download in postscript and acrobat formats. I've contributed a few scores to this project, one of which is an organ piece: Prelude and Fugue in E Minor by Nicolaus Bruhns. You can download it from ftp://sca.uwaterloo.ca/pub/Mutopia/BruhnsN/BWV847/Pfeminor/.   My point in posting this information is two-fold. First is simply to let anyone know who might be interested that this is available. If anyone is motivated to contribute other scores, well, that's how the archive grows! :-)   Secondly, I was contemplating a few other scores I might contribute, but I'm unsure of the copyright status of the works. They're both Kalmus editions, and from what I've heard Kalmus is known specifically for publishing scores which are out of copyright -- is this (always) true? Neither of the scores have copyright notices in them, anywhere.   The two scores are Boellmann's "Suite Gothique" and Widor's Sixth. Can anyone give any insight as to what the status of these copyrights might be? Also, is it safe to assume that they are unedited since no editor is listed?   Thanks, Joshua   -- Joshua Haberman <joshua@haberman.com>, University of Puget Sound "Delaying decisions" is too often a euphemism for "avoiding thinking." -Bjarne Stroustrup
